Smokey, tart and sweet. Great chilled or warm. Note: garlic chives are available in the early summer months. If you can find them, they add a terrific flavor to the salad, but it's good without them too.

  • 12 a tart apple, such as Granny Smith, finely diced
  • 14 cup finely diced sweet onion, such as Walla Walla Sweet
